We have a beautiful barrier island waterfront home less than one mile from the beach. We live on the lagoon side of the island and can watch dolphins and manatees from our backyard, not to mention the occasional rocket launch. Cocoa Beach is the closest beach to Orlando, so our location is great for people who want to spend time at the beach and at the Orlando theme parks.

Our home is available for non-simultaneous exchanges during the first week of every month. If you have a home you can exchange for another date, we may be able to trade! We are especially interested in US ski areas in the winter and spring and Europe and Asia during the summer. Washington, DC and New York City are also of interest.

The home was built in 2006 and has high-end design features.
- two master suites, one on the main floor that opens to the lanai and pool, and another upstairs with its own bath
- two additional bedrooms that share a bath, one with a new queen bed and one with bunkbeds
- extra trundle bed, and extra mattress, enough sleeping space for 10
- kitchen with granite counters, convection oven, gas stovetop, and stainless appliances
- game room that has a large air hockey/pool table/ping pong table to ensure family fun.
- two large flat-screen HDTVs
-Wii gaming system complete with Wii U and other kid-friendly games
- We love music, so our upstairs loft has many instruments, including a piano, a keyboard, and a drumset.
- We have two teenagers, so we have many family games, family movies, craft items, and thousands of Legos.

To enjoy the outdoors:
-screened in heated pool with waterfall and built in table and benches for lounging, sipping a glass of wine, or eating lunch
- a covered lanai
- an outdoor kitchen with a grill, fridge, and sink
- several bikes, large and small
- a canoe and both a double and single kayak for exploring the group of islands that are in our backyard
- 2 stand up paddleboards (SUP)/ surfboards

We live in a small beach town. Surfing, kayaking, windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing, and beachcombing are popular pastimes here. We think our beach town is fantastic, and so does a national expert. When USA Today (national newspaper) called “Dr. Beach,” also known as Florida International University professor and coastal expert Stephen Leatherman, for 10 Florida destinations that combine sand, surf and a welcoming sense of community, Cocoa Beach claimed a spot among his choices. Readers of the National newspaper, USA Today voted Cocoa Beach as the 3rd best beach town in Florida.

From Delta Sky Magazine:
This quintessential beach town boasts sand, sun, and a legendary thriving surfing empire. But that's not all

From American Airlines magazine:
This coastal Florida town bests the others by being just a hop, skip and a rocket ride away from outer space. http://hub.aa.com

We have art festivals, sand-sculpting festivals, and even bird-watching festivals, as many North American birds live in our lagoon over the winter. We are the closest beach to Orlando, so the Orlando theme parks can be part of your vacation plans!

We live in the south part of town, which is largely residential. Our beaches in this part of town are quiet, with single family homes rather than condos or hotels. You can bike to to the beach, less than 1 mile away, on a bikepath. If you prefer to drive, easy free parking is at the end of the street. Public tennis courts and a playground are even closer, about 1/2 of a mile away. A public golf course is 3 miles away. You could also bike to town, about 1 mile away, and visit a coffee shop or a number of local restaurants. If you travel about 3 miles north, the town is more tourist oriented, with many surf shops (including the famous Ron Jons surf shop), restaurants, hotels, and bars.

We are about 15 minutes from Port Canaveral, home to Disney Cruise Lines as well as Carnival and Royal Caribbean Cruise lines. We are 30 minutes from Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and 1 hour from Orlando International Airport. Disney World, Sea World and Universal Harry Potter are also nearby, about 1 hour and 15 minutes away. The newly opened Legoland is just under two hours away.

We are a family of four. My husband is a physician who now works in administration in the public health sector. I formerly worked in International Healthcare systems marketing. We have two sons, ages 17 and 20, who are both in university. They both are avid world travelers, love to learn new languages, and enjoy playing musical instruments.

We are empty nesters and hope to do a two week to one month exchange to a ski area this spring. Since there will be only two of us, a small condo or anything larger is great, as long as it is near skiing!

Our home is available on a non-simultaneous basis during the first week of every month. If you have a place we can stay at another time, let us know! We are especially interested in ski locations in winter and Europe/Asia during the summer. Washington DC and NYC are also places we love.

Most of our exchanges are simultaneous, however, our home is available on a nonsimultaneous basis quite often. We would always like ski locations in December 2016 or February/March 2017.

Otherwise, we are interested in any locations with something different, such as a historic city or in a rural area with cows and horses, especially in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, or France.

We have enjoyed the opportunity to have "local" experiences in other countries. We have found the best part of our trips are meeting the people that live in the areas of our exchange.

My son and husband are allergic to cats and dogs, and cannot stay where a dog or cat remains inside the house during the exchange.

Often, depending on the location, we travel with another family, so room to sleep 8 people is something we sometimes need.
